Gloria Loughman - The Painted LandscapeSaturday 14th - Sunday 15th April, 2018.
One of our most favourite teachers, Gloria Loughman, will be back in Perth for a one off workshop in April 2018, teaching her NEW workshop "The Painted Landscape". This workshop will be the first time taught in Australia and we are excited that Gloria has chosen Perth as this class's debut.
Design and construct your own landscape quilt using a chosen image as your starting point. The key elements of design, including focal point, perspective and balance will be discussed and then you will design your own wall hanging working from your selected image. This project features strips of fabrics in the background sky and water contrasting with a silhouette of land. After drawing your pattern, participants will paint areas of sky and water on white fabric. These strips are cut and rearranged on a cloth base and then quilted through the sandwich. Commercial and hand-dyed fabrics can also be incorporated.
This is a class where everyone is challenged to produce their own design but is supported through each stage of the process.
